Burned to a meager corpse, the dethroned king uses the last of his strength to take command of a corps of weak-minded goblins.

- Team up with friends and increase the challenge – Play with up to four players via ad-hoc multiplayer and face tougher bosses to acquire rare items!
Square Enix has revealed the Army Corps of Hell box art and gave gamers a good scare in process. They also revealed pricing details. All the info after the great looking box art…
Square Enix has announced pricing for what some people are calling their “pikmin in hell” title. The game is priced at ¥4,980 (which, at current exchange rates equals £41, $65) for the boxed version and ¥3,990 (£33, $52) for the downloadable version.
They also gave gamers a pretty good scare when one image showed that the game would need a memory card in order to save your progress. It was later revealed (via andriasang) that this isn’t the case at all. The game will save to it’s own card.
On a side note, Sony has stated that Vita downloads over 3G networks will be limited to only 20Mb. That means that gamers will have to their PSN downloading over a WiFi connection. In Japan, the 3G speeds are 128K download and 64K upload on the basic, 20 hour package and 5.7Mbits download and 14Mbits upload on the 100 hour package. There’s no way of knowing what that means for gamers in the United States as neither AT&T or Sony have mentioned how the Vita’s 3G will be handled here in the West.
Here’s a trailer for Square Enix’s other 4-player PlayStation Vita title — Army Corps of Hell, which is also a launch game.
